Ten Favorite Photos of Children Reflecting at the Gym

It's one of those rainy days in Okinawa.
And I don't feel like getting wet.

So, I dug up these photos from an Undokai (Sports Day) in Okinawa, Japan.

Being cooped up indoors on a rainy day is torture, to me.

It's probably torture for children, too.

What about parents and teachers ?

Are rainy days torture for them, too ?

It could be like being cooped up in a cage with a whole bunch of wild animals, I bet.

What governments around the globe should do is build more gyms.

Then, children would have places to reflect.

I could get out of my cage on rainy days and shoot them for you.

Photographically speaking, of course !

UPDATE: Look and see what some awesome stuff GOOGLE+ did with these photos !

The shine on that floor is incredible!

It's all in the angle of the camera, my friend. That and the blasted overhead lighting. You can catch the same reflections at any gym or bowling alley. It just takes some patience and lots of moving around. Next time I go there I'll ask but, I don't think they even use wax on that floor. It's just the glare of the lighting bouncing off varnish, I think.

I was just getting ready to leave the house, and it started pouring. If only I had something this fun to do instead of work on my computer.

The feeling, I know well. Whoever up there is responsible for dumping rain down here has someone watching me. Whenever I take the huskies for a really long walk, he waits for me to be at the farthest point from home. Then, starts pouring !
